Bespoke continues AWS training in APAC

Bespoke Training Services says it has seen rapid adoption of AWS training in Australia and New Zealand, and to build on this it is expanding its portfolio of locations, making Singapore a Training Partner of the AWS Partner Network.

AWS courses offered through Bespoke Training Services are instructor led and designed to help organisations and IT professionals build the skills necessary to effectively deliver cloud-based solutions on the AWS platform.

The sessions use targeted and role-specific training to help those using the AWS platform to extend their cloud expertise.

Trent Rosenthal, Bespoke Training Services director, says, “Those we typically see taking advantage of AWS training courses are organisations that work with Bespoke to design programs that ensure effective design and implementation of AWS cloud solution, and demonstrate they are interested in investing in and upskilling their IT staff.

“Far from becoming obsolete thanks to cloud, the role of the IT professional is changing. Certainly we also receive plenty of bookings from individuals seeking the opportunities available to those who continue their skills development and stay relevant in very competitive marketplaces.”

He says, “There’s a lot of positivity around the level of cloud adoption in Singapore, including recent research from the Singapore IDA which forecasts cloud spending among enterprises to almost double to S$920 million by 2018.

“SMBs and mid-size organisations in Singapore are also reportedly investing significantly in cloud.”

Throughout the courses, trainees work toward AWS certification and become more proficient with AWS products and services, enabling them to more effectively build, deploy, monitor and scale applications on behalf of their organisations and clients.

AWS courses facilitated by Bespoke Training Services are delivered by Amazon Web Services’ own trainers, and begin with the one-day AWS Essentials class, which provides an overview of the platform and its products and services.

From there the training path follows a curriculum built around specific job roles, with courses and certification offered in three main streams: Architecting, Systems Operations and Developing. Training specific to big data solutions is also available.

“To underscore and cement the role-specific content, each instructor-led training seminar includes immersive, hands-on exercises and gives participants a face-to-face opportunity to ask questions and discuss any real-world challenges they may be facing as they learn to implement AWS for their organisations,” says Rosenthal.

“We’re all about providing opportunities for companies and individuals to become more proficient on Amazon Web Services, to optimise their cloud implementations on the AWS platform and get the most value for their organisations.

“We know that acquiring new skills is a high priority for professionals,” he says.
